What are the possible side effects of CBD?

Some individuals have reported “altered” states of mind, light-headedness, imbalance and drowsiness at varying serving amounts… and at very high amounts, some users have reported gastrointestinal (GI) upset.

Hemp-derived CBD extract contains only trace amounts of THC, so tinctures derived from it are not likely to produce the associated effects. An average human can tolerate 20 mg per kilogram of body weight on a daily basis without experiencing negative effects.
